Against Me! Offer ‘True Trans’ EP as Temporary Free Download
The songs ‘F—MyLife666′ and ‘True Trans Soul Rebel’ offer a different sound to the punk rock stylings of AgainstMe!, as frontwoman Laura Jane Grace gets personal on the songs. “Does God bless your transexual heart,” sings Grace on the evocative yet bleak ‘True Trans Soul Rebel.’ In May 2012, Tom Gabel announced he was transgender, and his transformation and revelation was complete with his decision to live life as Laura Jane Grace.
The ‘True Trans’ EP will also be released as a 7-inch vinyl next month, and to support the music Grace is also embarking on a six-date solo tour. As for Against Me!, the band has not given a specific release date for their upcoming album ‘Transgender Dysphoria Blues,’ but one would expect the album would hit close to the group’s participation in the Riot Fest stops in Chicago (September 13) and Denver (September 21).
